The misty air flows through me

With every lingering breath

But my fingers continue to be

Numb as if I had faced death

 

To my left, to my right I see

A stream of people passing by

Human beings who’ve lost humanity

Creatures living only to die

 

Staring out to space, I wonder

About what this world still hides

What still is hidden in its slumber

Dreaming of the never-ending tides

 

Street lamps now are lighting up

Guiding people passing by

A warm, comforting light envelopes

Their hearts with each goodbye

 

People, now few, still walk the street

Wary of the empty darkness

Going as fast as their trodding feet

would travel, hoping for the best

 

Dawn is coming, bringing hope

I scamper and then I hide

With this tomorrow, I cannot cope

For all that remains is pride

 

The once midnight sky is now

starting to hide the stars

My beloved night bestows somehow

It’s crown to the daylight avatar

 

I peek from the shadow’s haven

Wondering what this day will hold

Perhaps it’s time to move again

Towards the light, where truth be told

 

The misty air flows through me

With every lingering breath

Without the darkness, I now see

With a vision free from death
